Why We Exist

Because Your dependency on social media platforms back fired

The social media platforms you have been using to distribute your content are designed to hold your audience back with them. A strategy that has helped Facebook and Google alone make 85% of the total ad revenue, shrinking your share of the pie. The only way out is to own your audience.
